    The crooked forest between Eschborn and SteinbachThe Schiefe Wald is located near the L3006 in the field between Eschborn and Steinbach, directly at the Regionalpark Rundroute. From here you have a very good view over expansive fields on the frankfurt skyline with its distinctive skyscrapers.The unusual work of art is reminiscent of a battle near Eschborn, which took place there in 1389 on the district "Streitplacken". The arms dispute arose from a feud between the Kronberg knights and the citizens of the free imperial city of Frankfurt. Although numerically superior, at the end of the conflict the city dwellers were inferior to the battle-hardened knights. It was a struggle for influence in the region, between town and country, guild system and feudal rule, freedom of trade and customs barriers. In 2014, the artists Ulrich Genth and Heike Mutter took the historical conflict as an opportunity for a landscape picture. Twenty-six trees were planted in an imbalanced position and held in place by supports that also act as clamps. Over time, the trees will react to their imbalance. In their deformation, the trees will react to their imbalance. In their deformation, the trees become the object of reflection on past and present, in their further growth to light but at the same time a symbol of overcoming and change.
